An enchantment land, a card with both the enchantment and the land type, first appeared as a test card in the Mystery Booster set (Enchanted Prairie).

History[edit | edit source]

Players have often wondered if enchantment lands had been considered for the "enchantment matters" Theros block. Mark Rosewater admitted that R&D's experience with artifact lands (which turned out way too powerful) scared them off from even trying, especially with Constellation in the mix.[1][2][3] It would have been a problem even if the enchantment land was legendary.[4][5] Even one enchantment land would have forced development to raise the costs of all the cards with the Constellation mechanic.[6]

Rosewater assumes enchantment lands will appear in a regular set one day (possibly in a supplemental set) but most likely not in a set where “enchantments matter”.[7]

Ruling[edit | edit source]

  • Playing Enchanted Prairie as a land uses a land drop, the same as playing an artifact land.[8]
